[fwd from another list]
A naked q is the occurrence of the letter q in a
word/name that is not followed by the letter u.
Naked q hypothesis:
Anything with a naked q in its name is likely to
be big trouble.
Examples supporting the naked q hypothesis:
Iraq, Qadaffi, Al-Qaida.
Can anyone come up with additional examples? Perhaps a research
program would be useful to test this hypothesis.
If the naked q hypothesis is confirmed, a practical application would
be for the NSA to scan intercepted messages for naked qs, and examine
those occurrences for possible threats to national security.
